I am not sure this is the right room for this question. But
I was hoping someone could give me steps on how to make my database accessible online. I want to be able to allow people to utilize some of my forms (those that search the database) to retrieve information. I have no idea how this can be accomplished and would appreciate direction to some articles to read or a quick step by step guide.
I am new to this.
Thanks for your time. I really do appreciate it.

I dont think that is what i am trying to do, then again maybe it is and i am not seeing it write. |
Let me give you an idea
So lets say i have a database of clubs. And for each club i have recorded what age groups it is open to and what city it is in.
I then, have a query by form, that allows me to search for those clubs based on the age group and city.
I want people, that are interested in joining a club, to be able, through the website i already have, to search for clubs in their area based on city and age group.

yes it is what you would want...to be able to connect to a data source (Database) no matter what kind it is (Access, MySQL, SQL Server...) over the internet you need to have a frontend solution which can communicate with it. There are many different technologies like ASP, DAP, PHP...all are possible to use. The tutorial you have been linked to uses ASP (active server pages) technology...so you have to convert your access form to an ASP or PHP or whatever you will get comfortable with so it can communicate to the backend data in the database. Then this would be the site the users would navigate to through the www.
